If you travel, you know the best memories come with besties and a boarding pass. And where you stay is just as important as where you’re going. But, let’s face it, planning that group vacation involves a lot of moving parts. Luckily, when you opt for an all-inclusive getaway, a hefty chunk of that work is already taken care of. Especially with a card like the Delta SkyMiles® Platinum American Express Card, which comes with a variety of benefits that make your travel experience more enjoyable. 

Prepare to take your travel escapades to a whole new level with our handpicked selection of top-tier destinations, ensuring your 2024 all-inclusive retreat lives up to your vision board dreams. 

Castle Hot Springs

Location: Morristown, AZ

Nestled in the Sonoran desert, just north of Phoenix, this one-of-a-kind property offers levels on levels of privacy, including exclusive access to the hot springs. While on site at the property, there are plenty of activities for every kind of vacation. You can hike through the desert, book a helicopter to experience it all from above (and cross off another bucket list item), or make group activities more thrilling by booking ATVs for the squad. If relaxing is more your speed, you can opt for spa treatments in a private cabana that allows you to appreciate the environment surrounding the hotel, without having to move a muscle. And if you and your crew really just want to unwind with no agenda, the hot springs, pool and firepits are available for you to partake at your leisure. Some rooms even come with their own private outdoor soaking tubs.  

Pro tip: The closest airport is Phoenix Sky Harbor International, which is about an hour away. But with a Delta SkyMiles® Platinum Amex Card, you can get up to $10 back monthly on your rideshare with your ride or dies, and pull up comfortably, without the stress of navigating new roads.

Earn up to $10 back in statement credits each month after you use your Card for U.S. rideshare purchases with select providers. Enrollment required. Terms Apply, Learn More.

Grand Velas Los Cabos

Location: Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

If you’re looking for your grand escape, look no further. Grand Velas is all vibes–in the best way imaginable.  Most suites offer a direct view of the Sea of Cortez; everything is decorated to maintain the coastal aesthetic. With a whirlpool and rain shower in your room, you might not even want to venture out. But if you do, you can catch the same views from one of three bars; indulge in a 10-course dinner at Cocina de Autor; or get pampered at SE Spa by Grand Velas, described on the resort’s website as “a 3500-sq. ft. wellness oasis.” If your group decides to get active, however, the Grand Velas team can get you set up with a brunch at sea, ATV tours, camel safaris, scuba diving, or a round of golf. 

The Ranch at Rock Creek

Location: Philipsburg, Montana

The Ranch at Rock Creek is your year-round opportunity to live out your rancher dreams. The property itself is an authentic 19th Century homestead surrounded by 6,600 acres of mountains, meadows, forests, ponds, and creeks. That means summers full of fly fishing, horseback riding, or Big Sky glamping; and winters on the slopes at the nearby Discover Ski Area. While at The Ranch, you’ll share space with only a handful of other guests, as the property only houses 28 suites. Even dinner has a local flare. Buckle Barn features a custom-built wood fire grill; The Granite Lodge, serves a multicourse dinner menu and regional wine pairings; and The Flagstone features an open-air wood fire grill and offers weekly Chef’s Grill outdoor dinners in the summer. 

The amazing news is that, no matter which of these all-inclusive experiences you choose, you’re in for a vacation you’ll never forget. And, getting closer with the crew will get you closer to Medallion Status when you book with your Delta SkyMiles® Platinum American Express Card. 

Earn $1 Medallion® Qualification Dollar for each $20 of purchases made on your Card in a calendar year and get a boost toward achieving Medallion Status for next Medallion Year. Terms Apply. Learn More.
